Hi to All! I am new to this board and have been lurking and reading. I love this board! It gives hope to my husband and me. It's nice to be able to vent, to read, to receive advice and to see miracles to happen. My husband and I have been trying for 7 long yrs. I already have a 13 yr. old daughter from a previous relationship. Been thru several IUI's, IVF Cycles, BBT & Charting, ICSI & all the fertility shots, meds & poked & proded and as far as we have gotten is the embryo transfer then......WHAMO! A neg. pg result. We were told I was in early menopause. Any way we decided to take a very long break from trying (over a year) and enjoy life. We enrolled with another fertility center in 10/'02' and have had the CD3 blood test and even passed the chlomid challenge test with flying colors! This fertility center tells me that I am NOT in early menopause, but unfortunately we had our first negative IVF cycle. I handled it pretty well. Today is CD2 and I'm having a new attitude.....I'm looking at this cycle as another chance to have a baby with my husband (this time on our own....who knows!) and if not we'll give the IVF one more chance at this center. It's nice to know we are not alone. Thanks so much for listening and the Best of Luck and Positive Thoughts for you all! Kathy S.
